The EVGA GeForce GTX 980/970 are the world’s most advanced GPUs. Powered by next-generation NVIDIA Maxwell architecture, it delivers incredible performance, unmatched power efficiency, and cutting-edge features like NVIDIA Super Resolution Technology. With up to twice the performance of prior-generation cards and breakthrough graphics technologies, the EVGA GeForce GTX 980/970 provides an elite gaming experience on virtual reality, HD, and ultra-resolution 4K displays.

EVGA ACX 2.0 – The World’s Most Efficient Air Cooler

Most graphics card manufacturers only focus on one aspect when designing their cooling solution and neglect all other aspects of the fan design and heatsink. With EVGA ACX 2.0, we focused on the details that make a real difference, not just marketing jargon.

In a major leap forward for gaming, NVIDIA has introduced the first high-end products based on its Maxwell chip architecture — the new GeForce GTX 980 and 970 GPUs — delivering unmatched performance, major new graphics capabilities and twice the energy efficiency of the previous generation.

Maxwell is the company’s 10th-generation GPU architecture, following Kepler. The engine of next-generation gaming, it solves some of the most complex lighting and graphics challenges in visual computing.

Its new Voxel Global Illumination (VXGI) technology enables gaming GPUs for the first time to deliver real-time dynamic global illumination. Scenes are significantly more lifelike as light interacts realistically in the game environment — resulting in deeper levels of immersion for gamers.

And a range of new technologies — including multi-frame sampled anti-antialiasing (MFAA), dynamic super resolution (DSR), VR Direct and extremely energy-efficient design — enable Maxwell-based GTX 980 and 970 GPUs to render frames with the highest fidelity at higher clock speeds and lower power consumption than any other GPU in their class.

Sniper F3 2400

Meet the Sniper F3 Kit

Do not let the hype around DDR4 fool you. We appreciate the new memory standard here and all it brings, but the truth is there’s plenty of life left in DDR3. In fact there is likely to be a continued interest in DDR3 for years to come, if only because the platforms are that much more mature and it is cost effective. As such, in todays’ landscape where PC gaming is on the rise again and hardware is easily eclipsing the gaming titles on the market. There’s sense in being a little more prudent in how we spend our hard earned cash and while we may all want that high speed DDR3 2800MHz set or above. It isn’t economically viable, thus it falls to sets such as these from G.Skill to provide the performance without breaking the bank.

Taipei, Taiwan – 10 September 2014 – G.SKILL International Co., Ltd., the leading extreme performance memory manufacturer and designer, is excited to feature two extremely high end DDR4 memory at 3333MHz 32GB (4GBx8) and 3200MHz 32GB (8GBx4) during Intel Developer Forum 2014 (IDF 2014).

Portable speakers are everywhere these days. From the ultra-portable compact speakers to the heavier high-end speakers that barely qualify as portable, there is a shape and size for everyone out there. Digging around the muck and figuring out what is good quality is a tough job, especially in Taiwan where gimmicks are a dime a dozen (Whatever you do, just avoid the Hello Kitty speakers). But there is one company that is doing things differently: Making GOOD products.

Gamdias is a company that specializes in gaming accessories, very futuristic looking gaming accessories from mice to keyboards that are all named after Greek gods. Hephaestus, the blacksmith of the Olympian world, is the newest line of gaming headphones to come out of Gamdias, and they are something to behold.

Look! A UFO

The Hephaestus set of headphones is particularly futuristic, with lots of functionless lines and two huge fake vents coming off the ear cups, the headset looks more like a spaceship than headphones. If that wasn’t enough, the headphones also have built-in LED lights so you look like you’ve activated your warp drive while you game…and it’s totally AWESOME! (Unless, of course, you want to use them in public)

Hyper x Cloud


While the packaging and look of the Cloud headphones is pretty generic, making them look more like a headset made for corporate call-centers than one made for gamers, the headphones themselves are anything but standard. In fact, the build quality of this set is amazing and worth every penny for the $80 USD price!

Built to Feel Good

The casing and frame for the headphones are made from solid aluminum, like a Macbook Pro or HTC One, really giving it a solid feel that you don’t find with the typical cheap plastic headphones. If you are looking for comfort, the ear cups and headband are made from REAL soft leather with plenty of padding behind them, making for the most comfortable over-ear headphones I have ever worn. They have even included a changeable set of fabric ear cups if the leather ones aren’t doing it for you.
